A Brief Introduction to Memorial & Funeral Services, Cincinnati, Ohio

Planning a funeral is one of those things most people would rather not think about. But it's important to remember that funeral services are a chance to say goodbye to someone special, and for many, they are a final loving act to perform for someone who meant so much. Renfro Funeral Services has been serving the Cincinnati, Ohio, area since 1921 with supportive and compassionate funeral planning services.

If you’re in charge of planning a funeral for a friend or family member, you may be wondering where to begin. Here, the Renfro Funeral Services team will give you a brief introduction to memorial and funeral services to help you get started:

  • Organizing A Funeral Or Memorial: A funeral service is a ceremony that is typically held with the body or remains of the deceased present. A memorial is a celebration of life where the remains are not physically present. A good place to start when funeral planning is to consider what your loved one would have wanted. Some people would've favored the formality of funeral services, while others may have preferred the more casual environment of a memorial. Which situation fits best with the personality and tastes of the deceased?
  • imageScheduling Memorial & Funeral Services: Most funeral homes, like Renfro Funeral Services, keep their hours of operation flexible to best meet the needs of grieving families. Think about planning services for times you feel will be conducive to the schedules of your guests. Remember that certain religious traditions have rules and guidelines in place for when a funeral or memorial should occur. 
  • Consider Flowers, Music, & Speeches: Again, reflect on the wishes of the deceased and their personal preferences. Here you can gain valuable insights into which flowers and musical selections to utilize during the memorial or funeral service. Some services include eulogies or speeches, while others forgo this aspect. Renfro Funeral Services provides comprehensive funeral planning guidance to help make this challenging time easier.

Let the memorial or funeral you are planning be a tribute to the life of the one you have lost. Call Renfro Funeral Services at (513) 221-4812 to start the memorial or funeral planning process. You can also visit their website to learn more.
